Jr Academy FAQ's

Jr. Academy Clinics

These are CLINICS ONLY and meet once or twice during the week, no weekend games.
These clinics are designed to promote individual skills, and are perfect for players/families who cannot commit to weekends, or those players who want another night of focused training. We have players who only do the Jr. Academy Clinic, players who do the clinic in addition to their Rec team, and players who do the clinic in addition to their Academy team!

 

  • Junior Academy Clinics (NOT TEAMS, but extra training sessions) will be set up as "events"
  • these skills clinics have set times/ dates but again - NO TEAM PLAY
  • you can do these in addition to being on a team OR instead of being on a team, ages U6-U10

Junior Academy Clinic Nights 

- Monday, St. Francis: U6, 5:30 PM   U7-U10, 6:30PM
- Wednesday, Laurel Point: U6-U10 (combined session), 5:30PM
- Thursday, Cheat Lake: U6 - U10 (combined session) 6:00PM (note: if the attendance is large we will break into two groups)



Junior Academy FAQs
 
  1. Are there try-outs for the Jr. Academy?
    • No. We have unlimited openings (assuming registration is timely) for this group.
  2. Does my child have to already have a certain skill level?
    • No. Our intention is to develop individual skills; therefore, we do not expect them to have a specific set already.
  3. What is the youngest my child can be to participate?
    • The standard ages for Jr Academy are 5-9. That said, FUNdamentals players may be promoted by the coaching staff (based on skill level). U6 or U10 players who desire more individual training will also be included in Jr Academy  
  4. Can my child still participate in their recreation league as well?
    • Yes!  
  5. When are the sessions/seasons?
    • Fall (Aug - Oct) and Spring (April - June)
  6. Can I just participate in one season (Fall or Spring) or do I have to do both?
    • Everyone is welcome to participate in one or both seasons.
  7. What is the mission of the Junior Academy?
    • The mission of the Jr. Academy is to create a fun and challenging learning environment for all players where they receive personalized and small group coaching from our trained professional coachng staff. In this setting our professional coaches will emphasize proper technical skill development while also promoting enthusiam and enjoyment of the game.
  8. What does my child need to bring when attending the Jr. Academy?
    • Soccer Ball: Each player must bring their own age appropriate size soccer ball to every training session. The focus of the Academy is for players to individually develop their technical skills. This is why we want every player to have their own ball. Without a ball, it will be difficult for a player to practice new skills and become comfortable with the ball.
    • Shin Guards: This is a piece of equipment worn on the front of the athlete’s shin to protect them from injury. We recommend the "pull-on" type for young players, as they usually have additional protection for the ankles.
    • Soccer Shoes or Soccer Cleats: These shoes have plastic or molded studs at the base to provide players with more traction on a grass or turf field. Baseball or football cleats are not legal for soccer (due to the style and placement of the studs) and are not recommended because they are not as flexible as soccer cleats, and therefore will not allow a player to get a good touch on the soccer ball.
    • Water bottle: We take plenty of water breaks, and we want everyone to be properly hydrated. Fresh water sources may not be available for your child at each practice, but we try to have something available in reserve. Please write your child’s name on the bottle if it is a reusable one.
    • Shirt, shorts and socks
